organization may determine who is president the next four years. the man in charge of turnout for romney, is political director richard beeson, who joins us from campaign headquarters in boston, and, rich, welcome to fox news sunday. >> chris, thanks for having me on, i'm sittingre trying to imagine what mr. axelrod is going to look like next week without his mustache... it is fun to think of. >> chris: we'll see. let me ask you about david axelrod, because he said you guys are desperate in pennsylvania, and you are vulnerable in florida. your reaction? >> well, desperate four years ago, this weekend, president obama was campaigning in indiana, and, today, governor romney is campaigning in pennsylvan pennsylvania. i don't think campaigning in states where we wasn't won since 1988 and 1972 are acts of desperation, it looks like the map is expanding drastically in our favor and it is nothing we are doing, it is governor romney's message and talk about florida, to spend more money down there is a little bit like barack obama's government, they want to throw money at the problem and hope it

, it's great to have you here. as we look at the latest polling out of pennsylvania showing mitt romney within striking distance, just four points separating the two candidates, 49% to 45%, so within the margin of error here, a $1.2 million pennsylvania ad by the romney camp, should the president be concerned? >> well, you're always concerned in elections. when i ran for election as mayor, i got 81% of the vote, i was concerned. that's number one. but number two, this is a sign that the romney folks know that ohio is gone and the only path to the electoral map is to expand it and get a pennsylvania or a minnesota or a michigan. and so it's really a hail mary pass. the polls are between four and six and you don't make that up in a week of television. if mitt romney had started in pennsylvania right after his first debate with that great performance, it might have made a race here, but it's too late. they have got a lot of money so they have got no reason not to low the hail mary pass but it's not going to make a difference here. i believe it is a sign of real desperation that they conclu

this is unfolding four days before the general election. president obama and governor romney fighting it out for every last vote, especially in the key state of ohio. today the latest cnn poll shows obama with a very slight edge there, but there's everything to play for. today, the last jobs report before election day was released. unemployment ticking up to 7.9%, but at the same time, 171,000 jobs were created. no surprise, both candidates reacted differently to the news. >> today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> mitt romney earlier today. you're looking at live pictures now from westchester in ohio, where rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, has given a blistering speech attacking barack

only up by four. paul and ryan along with john avlon in toledo, ohio. romney has outspent the president in pennsylvania since he became the nominee. i saw this. i was stunned when our producer looked at these numbers. of the 15 million total, just in this week alone. is this money well spent? >> i think it makes a lot of sense for this reason. now, it's true that ohio might be a tighter state, but the question is, it's the marginal benefit. mitt romney spent a ton of time in ohio and if spending an additional few hours as we get closer to the election could make a big difference in pennsylvania given he has spent far less time in that state, that's what you've got to think about. real additional hours in ohio make that much of a difference there, where as in pennsylvania, it could be a difference in defeat. it's 20 electoral votes versus 20 in ohio. this could really scramble the map. >> i'm going to look at the map in a second, but first, paul, i want to go to you. mitt romney has put 2 million ads worth in pennsylvania over the past week and become's going to campaign for hi

romney is campaigning over the last 48 hours, then surely the president who only has four days left until the general election, has to campaign, too, doesn't he? >> sure he can but he could divide his time, couldn't he? i don't see how he's spending any time focused on this. mitt romney has no responsibilities here. he's the challenger. he actually cut off his campaigning. at every one of these rallies he asks for contributions. nobody can substitute for the president of the united states. nobody. he's the commander in chief. it's his responsibility. what we have here is a commander in chief who is constantly putting the responsibility elsewhere. the economy, it's george bush's fault. benghazi, hillary clinton's fault. well, the buck stops with the president of the united states. he asked for the job. it's his responsibility to stay on top of it and he right now is not staying on top of this recovery. >> rupert murdoch has tweeted tonight that he thinks that governor christie should now publicly declare very loudly and clearly, redeclare his support for mitt romney given all the pra
